STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW
Elevator pitchman Harvilla does the real thing regularly in print. This one’s just for the pixels.
K-Fed Curse (KFC), Part I
“You can be the proud owner of Britney Spears’ hair, extensions, the Omega clipper used to cut it all off and even the can of Red Bull she was drinking at the time.”
Goddamn beauty-salon ladies always now how to make a bad hair day even worse. [BuyBritneysHair.com]
KFC, Part II: They Tried to Make Me Go To Rehab, I Said No No No
Dearest Britney, an idea: cover Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab.”
Seriously, Brit. It’ll show you have a sense of humor about this whole thing. It’ll be your big comeback. Hell, it’ll be bigger than that “Dick in A Box.” Do it! [Download from Who Killed the Mixtape?]
I Get Wet
Andrew W.K. plans to open two-floor club in NYC.
Thereby creating the worst job in Manhattan: bathroom attendant for the guy who wrote “Party Til You Puke.” [CMJ]
Oh, Whoa, Whoa, Wolfie’s Crying
Van Halen reunion on hold.
We’re sure Gary Cherone would be willing to cancel his one-date Masshole-shithole tour to help. Or you could give Opie and Anthony a call—worked for CBS. [Pollstar]
No One Told Us It Was ‘New Violators Day’
Norwegian Band Inspires Blogger Coke Deal
At 9:00 am, Stereogum anoints “the only Norwegian band to truly knock ours socks off two festivals in a row.” (Put that in your press clippings!) Four minutes later, Brooklyn Vegan posts their US tour dates. Both sites later update their initial posts, link to each other, and do a full-frontal laptop dance. Innocent commenters left nonplussed.

KFC, Part III: Seriously, Keep Him Away From Your Loved Ones
Tonight, David “Disco D” Shayman Tribute at Studio B. Featuring Spank Rock, DJ Assault, DJ Funk, and more. Hosted by Lauren Flax and Oxy Cottontail. Proceeds go to Ann Arbor Teen Center, Neutral Zone.
Nothing rude to say about this, even if Disco D did help bring “PopoZao” into the world. The man was a rare talent who’ll be missed. [Lauren Flax’s MySpace]
